The “Kardashian Effect” on Plastic Surgery

Monday, November 16th, 2015

A new trend is becoming more popularized in the plastic surgery industry as more women aim to have that curvy body a la Kim Kardashian. The Brazilian butt lift is now slowly becoming one of the most performed procedures in cosmetic plastic surgery.

Barbara Mendoza, the owner of BM Skincare, is a 38-year old aesthetician who wants a body as young-looking as her face. She said, “I’m from Venezuela, so it’s normal in my country to be curvy. I was thinking more like where I come from.”

To have the voluptuous body she wanted, Mendoza visited Utopia Plastic Surgery and Med Spa and talked to Dr. Franklin Rose. Dr. Rose performed liposuction on Mendoza’s mid section and transferred the fat into her buttocks to achieve that “Kardashian Effect.”

Dr. Rose stated that, “It’s very common for us to do liposuction, tummy tuck, maybe even some breast work at the same time we’re doing the buttock lift.” It costs around $5,000 up to $6,000 to get the famed Brazilian butt lift.

Mendoza also added that undergoing the procedure helped her stay in shape. “When you have surgeries, you have to go to the gym, but you feel more healthy,” she said. She feels a lot more confident now because when she sees her reflection, she likes what she’s seeing and how she feels.

People usually look and sometimes even stare at people they find attractive and it seems like more people are now paying her attention. She’s also slowly getting used to the comments she’s getting from both men and women.

“Sometimes I feel nervous because they look at me like, wow. That makes me feel weird but I’m OK with that. I know this sounds superficial, but I feel beautiful. I feel sexy. I feel sensual, ” she said.

This is the same practice where the Keeping Up with the Kadashians star has gone to before to get Juvederm and injectable fillers for her lips.

On her website, Jenner admitted that she only had lip fillers. The 18 year old star further explained that her lips have always been a major insecurity of hers, that was why she wanted to make a change.

In an article printed on Sept. 8, Kylie talked about her lip injections. She still goes to Dr. Ourian and has Juvederm for her lips. She trusts the doctor and considers him to be the best and natural about plastic surgery. In fact, Kylie went to another doctor before, but was not happy about it.

She actually recommended to anyone who would like to undergo injectable filler to opt for the one that lasts for two to four months only. It could get annoying to have the procedure again and again, although you can stop it any time you want.

Looking at Kylie Jenner, her face still looks natural even after admitting to getting a lip plumper surgery. It actually also shows us the power of makeup, as Kylie likes to use lip liner as a way to enhance her features.

When it comes to the rumors about breast enlargements, Kylie wrote on her website that her change in breast size was attributable to her growing up.

Paris Hilton’s Perfect Skin Needs No Plastic Surgery

Saturday, August 29th, 2015

Born to fame and living in fame, Paris Hilton confessed that a lot of people actually don’t know the real Paris Hilton.  She told New You that, “A lot of people don’t know the real me….The Paris that they were introduced to over a decade ago on The Simple Life is not who I am. That was just a character I was playing.”

Now, that got us all curious as to who the real Paris Hilton is. According to the 34-year old heiress, “The real Paris is a down to earth, sweet, real girl—woman now—who is a business woman and feels very proud…I have a really big heart.” She also shared how she maintains her youthful skin and it is not because of plastic surgery.

Still on the topic of plastic surgery, Paris continued, “I’ve never done anything in my life. People love making things up, but I am very lucky that I have listened to my mom through my young age. She told me to stay away from the sun, so my friends would be frying in the sun every day and now they all look much older and all have Botox.”

“I even asked my dermatologist if I should do it and he’s like, ‘I refuse to do it to you…Your skin is perfect. I will not do it to you until you need it and I don’t know if you ever will.’ I am happy with that. I have nothing against it; all my friends have done everything—boobs, nose, chin, cheeks. I live in Hollywood so I’m used to seeing it. It’s just that I’ve never wanted to do it,” she said. She definitely doesn’t need plastic surgery with her perfect skin, we salute you Paris!

When asked about her biggest regret in life, she said, “I have now learned that you can’t trust everyone and that not everyone has good intentions. My biggest regret is letting certain people into my life who were bad people.”

Top Irish Model Tiffany Gushes About Her New Chin

Tiffany Stanley recently underwent plastic surgery and could not stop telling the world about it. The model had taken to Instagram with her Barbie-like blond hair and baby blue eyes to call particular attention to her new purchase: dermal filler injection. The former Miss Ireland runner up got this shot to the underside of her face to fix her unbalanced chin.

The Kardashian Connection

The FHM and Esquire model further revealed that the plastic surgery was performed by no less than Dr. Simon Ourian, doctor to the stars including the famous Kardashian sisters. I guess Tiffany now has more in common with Kim other than the penchant for posing with her backside. It is ironic though, since Tiffany now prefers to post frontal pictures of her face after her surgery rather than putting up pictures of her rear that had often elicited comparisons with Mrs. Kanye West.

Confidence Booster

Well, her recent facial close ups might be a testament to her new found confidence.  “I’m happy and I feel great… More power to anyone that wants to look and feel good I say,” the aspiring commenter enthused. Tiffany further said that she doesn’t understand why plastic surgery would even be an issue these days. She is so happy with the result of her operations, she seem to be even endorsing going under the knife. It is hard to believe that she used to think lowly of artificial beauty enhancements.

Change of Heart

“Some women resort to surgery and fillers, but they end up looking way worse,” Tiffany had said previously. She stated that she fears plastic surgery because most patients end up looking like waxwork. She had apparently overcome her fear and embraced cosmetic operations to further improve her already stunning looks. She now feels like a work of art, calling her doctor an “artist and the best doctor in LA.”

Tiffany’s is another of those stories that show that one should not pass judgment easily. Plastic surgery is more than vanity. With the right motivation and expert surgeons, it is a path to self-improvement and confidence builder that can be availed even by the already beautiful like Tiffany.

Ariel Winter’s Breast Reduction Journey

Ariel Winter, from the series Modern Family, attended Disney’s D23 Expo just days after she admitted that she had undergone plastic surgery to reduce her breasts. She suffers from frequent back pains due to her large breasts.

Seventeen-year old Ariel Winter also said that people seem to notice her breasts first instead of focusing on her acting skills or how well she does her job as an actress. This is why the young actress underwent plastic surgery, specifically breast reduction.

If you’re thinking of getting a breast reduction surgery, here are some important notes to consider:

  • Preparation – Check the skills of the plastic surgeon that will perform the surgery on you. Find before and after photos of his or her previous patients. For the “before” photos, find a patient who has similar body size, areola size, nipple location, breast symmetry, chest size and breast size.

As for the “after” photos, the things to note are the visibility of scar, symmetry, whether they look natural, the location of the nipple as well as the extent of reduction. This is imperative because you as a future patient won’t be able to predict the results of the plastic surgery but at least you can somehow measure up the skills of the surgeon.

  • Operation – During the plastic surgery itself, three incisions will be done. First is around the areola, second is the vertical cut from the bottom of the areola to the underside of the breast and third incision follows the curve of the breast crease. After the surgery, the patient is advised to take time to heal from 5 days up to 2 weeks. Ariel Winter took 5 days to heal.
  • Recovery – During the recovery time, the patient must have these four necessities: ice, washcloths, loose shirts and special creams or ointments. The patient must also abstain from any heavy physical activities in order for the scar will heal faster.

Breast reduction surgeries are not just for women but also for men.
